Behold one of the weirdest and most impressive things I have EVER seen:

A 6800 S-100 based system with PDP-8 front panel switches.  

I will say that again.

A 6800 S-100 based system with PDP-8 front panel switches.  

Apparently weird was the goal of this machine.  I don’t know much of anything about it, and I can’t even remember who’s it was.  It even has a wire wrapped section! Either way, this is an impressive build.

Did you know? 

Glynn Turman and Aretha Franklin Who knew? Depending on which decade you were born, you may remember Glynn Turman best for his role in Cooley High or his stint as retired Army colonel Bradford Taylor on A Different World or his role on the HBO drama The Wire. Needless to say, we had no idea that the actor was married to Aretha Franklin from 1978-1984. They had no children together.
